    ok ...I can't stand it. I gotta trade the vstrom for a 950.
    How simple is an oil & filter change? are there 2 filters?
    also whats the better (faster) color black or orange?

    Oil change is a piece of cake...One filter, two screens and a magentic plug...Not that big a deal...I can do it in about 30 minutes now...

    Black is fastest.... :evil

    Black bikes "feel" faster but it is just an illusion. Orange ones are definately quicker. Ask Ricky Suave! :nod

    Orange faster. Oil change is no problem once you completely disassemble the bike, just kidding, kinda. Owners manual will walk you through it the first time and then it's pretty easy.
